Cases and molds for the 5th-gen Apple iPad confirms smaller bezel, Apple iPad mini like design
The next full-sized iPad will be constructed with a back made of "shiny, modern aluminun" according to a report, and a picture of another case for the slate shows the same smaller bezel and design cues taken from the Apple iPad mini including the rounded corners. From time to time, we have seen leaks appear for this tablet and all of them show a thinner, lighter design that looks like an iPad mini on steroids. Using new displays that have smaller LEDs is how Apple plans on reducing the size and weight of the device.
For example, not only do we have the case mold to look at, but pictures of another third party case have leaked and once again it supports the idea that the fifth iPad will be the Apple iPad mini's big brother. Checkout the slideshow below.
